Know your NBA 2K21 skills; you can quickly acquire the skills to compete with the elite. Whether roaming the block or facing off with LeBron and Brows in Los Angeles, mastering your offense and defense has never been more critical. For example, compared with last year's game, NBA 2K21 takes a very different shooting method and takes full advantage of the new challenges of jump shots. It takes time to ensure that you can deal with changes, so we have compiled these essential NBA 2K21 tips to help you win the game.
Know your teammates
Every player has a release point, which gives him the most excellent chance of sinking. If you don't know when it is, then you will have a horrible game experience. Keep practicing until you know that players like the back of their hands. This will also help you get free throw opportunities and win or lose games at the free-throw line.
Set the focus of the team
In the coach settings, you can modify the team's offensive and defensive focus. Should your team focus on shooting or getting jump shots? Break the board on offense or return to preventing the defensive breakthrough? As the head coach, these are significant decisions you need to make.
Offensively: We must use the breakthrough, but if the defense is back to its original state, it will be happier to spend some time. Unless your player has his feet firmly fixed and the defender is at least one step away from him, don't make outside shots. If the hitting time is short, you need to block the stone. Otherwise, it is better to spend some time on an open appearance.
Defense: The game will inform you (using arrows) who your players should cover. Stay in front of him, and don't give him an open driveway. Once he is stuck, please observe his teammates as he is about to pass. After some practice, you will better predict the direction you are heading and gradually intercept the pass (X button on Xbox, Square on Playstation).
Familiar with telephone calls
As long as the defense locks you in, you can play. Press "up" on the keyboard to set "smart play" to help your player open. Or, if you feel more advanced, click "Left" on the d-pad and call up the player yourself.
Understand the basis of publishing
